    Swiss Rifle Grenade ?

    Can somebody tell me the type of rifle grenade shown. A similar photo was shown back in 23 March 2008 by Ammodillo but did not say the model or if it is a practice grenade. Dimensions approx. 78mm diameter and 505mm long.
    Print on tail is: 592-5114. 396- 82T. I think it is Swiss?
